Compute North, a provider of large-scale computing infrastructure, today announced construction is underway to build a 300MW TIER 0 data center next to the Wolf Hollow Generating Station in Granbury, Texas.
Compute North did not specify if the plant is Wolf Hollow I or II
"Compute North's modular infrastructure will be scalable up to 600MW and co-located directly at the source, providing grid-balancing services to the Energy Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT)," the company said
Compute North's TIER 0 data centers include a curtailment option that provides the data center the ability to respond quickly during times of peak demand that stress the grid.
"Compute North's modular containers will be co-located at the Wolf Hollow plant through a unique behind-the-meter approach, bringing the load directly to the source. The interconnection will provide ERCOT with a consistent yet interruptible load profile for curtailment services without increasing the price of electricity for Texas customers," the company said
Although not noted in its announcement, Compute North provides various crypto and blockchain services including ASIC Miner Hosting and
